The Cruise Control 5.2 was driven by customer demand for a strong, yet a proven style fishing boat offering a true balance of beauty, hardcore fishability, weather protection, performance and comfort in an exciting offshore trailerable boating package.
Featuring a 20-degree deadrise for stability combined with her deep entry, the Cruise Control 5.2 delivers a smooth ride ride through all types of seas, creating a whole new realm of possibilities for weekend adventures. For the angler who desires the ultimate in a highly mobile fishing platform, the Cruise Control 5.2 is literally... in a class of its own.
For the arrangement plan, the question most asked was;
"Could we please include a private area in regards to the toilet arrangement, not only for guests but more importantly... the opposite sex". So in this regard, we made this one of our top prioritys with this design, using real walls and not flapping curtains to the outside world.
Also, with her comfortable helm station & deck, rear-facing cockpit seating, cabin with private amenities and spacious multi-function storage compartments, the Cruise Control 5.2 has every amenity an active family could need. Sporting a wide array of hardcore fishing features and the strength and safety for offshore offshore capability, the Cruise Control 5.2 is a perfect combination of fishability and and most of all....family fun.
